    If not your wii might have a problem.

    well maybe for some reason that game isn't supported by the wii! I would know why my theory would be correct but if you can borrow a game from someone or try a diffrent disk of your you maybe can see if im right!

    Hope you get it to working

    no i don't think thats it, I'm pretty sure the Wii is completely backwards compatible. (unlike that big black thing)

    What specific games have you tried (just to cross check potential compatibility issues, though I don't believe there is any)?

    Are the GC games scratched at all?

    I ask because *if* the games are in fact (99.9% likely) compatible, then there has to be some other issue - the Wii may be much more scratch sensitive vs. the GC.

    If they were loading and hanging or crashing mid game, I might wonder about something at the gamecode level, but this sounds like a physical issue with [reading] the media.

    Or something paranormal...

    I would look on Nintendo's Customer Service Website, and either call them or send them an email.
